Just thought I’d write a quick post on this. Adri and I had some problems tonight embedding a .flv file. We used Dreamweaver CS4 to write the code and scripts and so forth. The movie ran like a dream locally, but got nothing when uploaded to the server. Firebug showed the right code, right file paths, right scripts – right everything, except there was no movie.
A few google searches turned up this quick and concise article (Adding .FLV MIME Type in IIS) that fixed my problem. As it turns out IIS does not come with .flv as a default MIME type. As such it must be added. To do so, follow the above link to receive your 4 steps to IIS .flv bliss.
